Hearing aids and cochlear implants help a lot. So too do assistive listening devices. But those of us with hearing loss quickly come to recognize that technology alone doesn’t provide all that we need to successfully and comfortably communicate with friends, family, and colleagues. We need to also develop our own strategies for enhancing our understanding and participation in dialogue in social and professional settings. At this holiday season, with its parties and family get-togethers this is especially important.
Come share with us what works for you (and what doesn’t). Bring along your spouse, significant others, close friends as they too are an important part of a successful communications strategy. This will be a dialogue. We have much to learn from each other.
